Enough is enough. Go to the beach. Open your business. Go to the gym. Go outside. Live your life. Governors who do not respect basic human rights and freedoms will not be reelected.
It was announced on October 28, 2019 that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the NIH would receive $100 million in grants for HIV and sickle cell research from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Each day 21,000 children die from starvation and disease.
Each day some 25,000 people die of starvation
3,000,000 children die of hunger in India every year

But what do the hundreds of millions of Indians who face penury as a consequence of these lock-downs think about these policies? Is the risk of contracting a flu-like illness worth your family going hungry for weeks or longer? Why is it so much worse than other deadly infectious diseases, from TB to Japanese Encephalitis, which have been killing millions each year for decades? How do people who live jammed cheek to jowl in squalid slums with no water to drink and no money to buy food “socially distance”, “wash hands thoroughly with soap” and “use sanitisers frequently”? Why did the people who queued up with me on the street outside a half-shuttered grocery store, minutes after the PM’s speech, to stock up on essentials, get lathi-charged by imperious police? This, in Goa, where the COVID-19 case count is an impressive zero.
We are in need of a great spiritual re-awakening. The core of this awakening needs to be living for the sake of others. We see this spirit in the movement of the first Great Awakening in the United States in the period around 1740 to 1750. Daryl Bryant writes in an essay in The Coming Kingdom; Essays in American Millennialism & Eschatology
Rather than seeing the millennial kingdom unfolding in the events subsequent to the Awakening, Edwards believed that the Devil had succeeded in turning the movement away from its divine ground. Consequently, Edwards turned to the development of an account of the Christian life centered on the overcoming of a parochial spirit, on rooting out the demons of self-centeredness in the Christian, the church and the wider culture.

In an article on the Children’s Health Defense Website, Dr. Toby Rogers writes:
Let’s examine 3 scenarios: lower bound, mid-range, and upper bound. Following the Brenner (1976) model, these figures all reflect the estimated cumulative impact of an increase in unemployment on mortality over a five-year lag period.
Lower bound. If the unemployment rate increases by 5 points as a result of the various lockdowns, then 294,170 additional lives will be lost, not from coronavirus, but from deaths of despair.
Mid-range. If the unemployment rate increases by 16.5 points (as predicted by Treasury Secretary Mnuchin), then 970,761 additional lives will be lost to deaths of despair.
Upper bound. And if the unemployment rate increases by 10-fold — which is what we are already seeing in several states — then 1,853,271 lives will be lost to deaths of despair from government orders to lock down, shut down, and shelter in place.
The magnitude of the association between unemployment and mortality is higher for men than women and higher in early career and middle career workers than older workers (Roelfs et al., 2011, p. 849). It seems reasonable to assume that the coronavirus economic crash will also disproportionately impact the poor and working classes who lack sizable financial reserves.https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/will-deaths-of-despair-outpace-deaths-from-coronavirus/
Countries that respect God-given rights, and states that respect God-given constitutional rights are not doing any worse than other places that have instituted draconian restrictions.
The risk of getting measles is greatly exaggerated; there were only about 324 deaths per year in the entire US, historically.
Actual rate of death is one in 10,000, not one in 1000, historically. The CDC chart is misleading and dishonest. The CDC rate is based on those hospitalized, but 10 times to 15 times more are never hospitalized and recover.
The actual rate of hospitalization, historically, is about 1.5%, not 20%
Do we see a familiar game plan here? Scare the heck out of people.
Rev Sun Myung Moon states:
..Your conscience knows and perceives not only every action you have performed but
also every thought you have entertained. Your conscience is aware of these things before your
teachers, parents or even God are. Hence, if you were to live in absolute obedience to the
commands of your conscience, which is your teacher for eternity, you would be absolutely
guaranteed to have eternal life.
